SAW Devices

Surface Acoustic Wave Devices for biosensoric and wireless communication applications


Surface acoustic wave devices (SAW) are commonly applied in modern commercial communication systems like radio-frequency (RF) front-end modules in cell phones, sensor devices for the detection of pressure and temperature or micro fluidic applications.

IHP`s Contribution

- Integration of CMOS compatible SAW devices into BiCMOS process flow.

- Design and simulation of SAW devices.



This project is funded by BMBF and ESF.
